Windows Mobile 2005 (WM 5.0) Certificate Issues.

As we are dealing with a lot of Windows Mobile 2005 / WM 5.0 devices, one problem has become increasingly apparent: whenever a customers server is setup using an Invalid certificate when using SSL, the device cannot sync with exchange. I have tried to install the certificates using a specially built .cab installer, attempted to edit the registry, but these have worked to no avail. Does anyone have any sure fire ways to work-around this issue and if so, could you provide some "step-by-step" (exlcuding installing verisign certs etc) tutorials for our team. Regards & Thanks, KJF.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’ve been researching a problem some of our users have been having trying to use Outlook Mobile Access from their mobile phones and came across this article. It explains why certificates from your own certificate authority (as opposed to third party certificates from Verisign, etc.) don’t work with all phone service carriers.

    We had similiar issues whilst setting up our WM5 devices and we got around the problem by using an updated ROM Pack (AKU2) for our devices which we got from the mobile operator if they are OEM'd devices or from the manufacturer's websites. Even some of the big named certificate vendors caused the same problem as the root certs on the devices had expired. I would tell anyone for ease of installation use a certificate provider that uses a root certificate already installed on the devices. Cluggy
